The #1 book on sports scholarships, completely updated and revised!

$1 billion of athletic scholarships are awarded each year

But student-athletes who aren't big-time recruits miss out on tens of thousands of dollars of financial aid available to them. The problem is students and parents don't know where the money is or how to get it.

  • Discover the secrets to getting a sports scholarship
  • Over seventeen hundred colleges offer athletic programs.
  • Over 500,000 athletes participate in sports in the nation's college programs.
  • But less than 1% (about 4,000) of them get Division I, full-ride financial aid grants.

The truth is: 80% of all college athletic opportunities are located outside Division I!

But to seize those opportunities, you must take control of your own recruiting process?recruiting, research and homework, exposure and promotion, and negotiating?all in the environment of a high-stakes contest where only the opposition knows the rules.

This book will give you the edge.

If you aren't one of the 4,000, but are athletically and academically qualified to participate in college sports, The Sports Scholarships Insider's Guide will lead you step by step through the twists, turns, and all too often unpleasant surprises to achieve your ultimate goal of a roster position and financial aid for your athletic ability.

"Practical, step-by-step information in a clear and conversational manner."
School Library Journal

Dion Wheeler, former coach and recruiting consultant, gives students and their parents the inside edge to not only find great scholarships, but get the best offer no matter what their skill level.


Did you know that $1 billion are awarded in sports scholarships each year? Sports Scholarships Insider's Guide shows students that an athletic scholarship is within their grasp no matter what their sport or division.
